as always, the only way to KEEP the music is to SHARE it, unless you are a bazillionaire and can afford to keep redundant copies of everything, your redundant copies are the trees that grow from the seeds you share...

the pointer was to point out that you are resurrecting a stale thread,and the discussion is "over there" not "here"

and as I understand it, there will not be an 'opening up' of the upload process because of the GDIAP group. "if you cannot answer the question: "Is this the best source available" for a given show, I'm certain the archive will not be available for upload.

the archive is not for the purpose of you backing up your masters, your backup is and always has been the files you have shared.

and in any case, you will get better answers from people in whose knowledge you may have more faith --- over HERE:

and NOT in this thread which died 6 years ago.

I mean no discourtesy, I'm answering your question so it doesn't just lay there. So I really recommend, if my info isn't trustworthy to you, or even if it is, that you ask again http://www.archive.org/details/GratefulDead#forum <--there

you are incorrect the archives is for archiving the recordings... no matter how much i have shared it would be very time consuming to track them down as opposed to simply going to the archives and downloading what got lost...... i figured out the issue you do a tree on etree and the group puts up the masters.... no worries i have started the process kin the spring and continue to do so... i do appreciate the fact that you took time to answer me though

Yes the archive is for archiving the recordings. It's just not, in the case of the Grateful Dead, open for uploading everything. If your masters have a known lineage etc, yes, etree.org is the place to go, regardless of if they are picked up by the LMA archive (this) because once it's seeded to etree, it is being duplicated by 'everyone' and will then withstand the bitrot, tape failures etc...

I've not been active on this forum for about 6-7 years, but I had email notifications 'on' for this thread, because I was interested in the outcome of the original discussion whatever that had been, way back then.

When you asked your question, I got pinged, and I noticed that there was just the one ping, giving me the impression that whatever it was, nobody had responded. I would have felt ignored if it had been me, so of course I gave you the best answer I had, go over to the new forum where everyone is and ask there...

Thanks for getting back to me. I appreciate it. Sorry about the antagonistic vibe we had going there for a sec.

for anyone else that stumbles on this thread... go over to the new forum, all the cool kids are doing it:

I'm just blown away that you have been following a thread for 6-7 years.
